Thiagi's Tweets: Teamwork Techniques

Every day, Thiagi tweets ready-to-use pieces of practical advice on different topics such as facilitation, listening skills, communication, leadership, productivity, training, and management.


Here’s a list of tweets about teamwork techniques that were frequently retweeted:

  1. If you have introverted members in your team, don’t force them to work with others. Accommodate their work style by leaving them alone.
  2. Healthy conflict is a requirement for a high-performance team. Equally important are effective conflict-management techniques.
  3. If you are the team leader, distribute your responsibilities among other members. Pitch in and lend a hand to complete team tasks.
  4. It is wonderful to be loyal to your team. But this does not require you to be prejudiced and negative toward outside managers and customers.
  5. Periodically, ask the members to evaluate the trust level within their team. Ask them to discuss how to increase trust.
  6. Every team should have some of its members focusing on the relationships and communications among all of its members.
  7. Be fair. Balance the workload in your team. Balance the airtime during meetings. Balance the distribution of rewards and resources.
